The Chicago Fire came to Columbus Crew Stadium on Sunday afternoon just hoping to get out of town with a least a tie. After all, they hadn’t won in Columbus, Ohio since 2007 and hadn’t won a game in their previous 11 games.

The law of averages had something better in mind for the Fire.
Chicago’s Cristian Nazarit scored in second-half stoppage time, barely 10 minutes after entering the match off the bench, as the underdog Fire pulled a stunner, beating the Columbus Crew who had not lost at home all season, 1-0.
The Fire ended an 0-4-7 streak and became the first team in 13 games to outshoot the Crew (18-8).
Orr Barouch, another substitute off the bench, set up the game-winning play by taking the ball down the right side of the box that let to a shot into traffic. Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer made the save but Nazarit, was there for the rebound shot.
The Crew drops to 4-4-6 on the season.
Early in the game, the Crew was the aggressor, getting many chances to score, but could not finish their opportunities.
The Crew will travel to the space city of Houston, Texas to take on the Dynamo for the first intra-conference match between the two teams on Saturday June 18. The Dynamo was moved to the Eastern Conference for the 2011 season with the arrival of the two newest expansion teams, Portland and Vancouver being added to the Western Conference.

The Texas Bowl in Houston finally has a title sponsor in Meineke Car Care.

The title sponsorship is the first for the Texas Bowl which is 5-years-old.

Meineke previously was the sponsor of a bowl game in Charlotte, North Carolina, where its corporate headquarters is located. Sam Meineke of Houston founded the company over 39 years ago.

Meineke, one of the top auto service companies in the nation, has a three-year deal with ESPN Regional TV. The Texas Bowl matches a Big 12 team against a member of the Big Ten in December at Reliant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans.

Neither UConn or Butler lit up the scoreboard, shot the ball well or played a perfect game, but the team that played the best defense, won the game.

The Huskies won 53-41 in Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas, one of the worst national championship game’s of all-time.

Kemba Walker finished with 16 points for the Huskies (32-9), who won their 11th straight game since closing the regular season with a 9-9 Big East record that no one thought they’d even get past the first round of the tournament.

UConn head coach Jim Calhoun at 68-years-old, became the oldest coach to win the national championship and joined the likes of John Wooden, Adolph Rupp, Mike Krzyzewski and Bob Knight as only the fifth coach to win three NCAA titles.

Connecticut using their height and shot-blocking ability, intimidated Butler into missing several inside shots. They outscored the Bulldogs (28-10) 26-2 in the paint. Butler, from the mid-major conference, The Horizon League, were playing in their second straight title game, went a whopping 13 minutes, 26 seconds in the second half making just one field goal. Kind of mind-boggling for a good shooting, perimeter team.

Before their shooting went by the wayside, Butler was leading 25-19 and it became an insurmountable deficit of 41-28.
